  1. 1. BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT WTP4-Maintenance Building LEED Performance Report
  2. 2. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The following Performance Reports were created in accordance with Council Resolution 20071129-045. The City of Austin is a recognized international leader in sustainable building practices in which municipal building strive to conserve energy, water, and other natural resources while promoting human health and safety. The holistic approach to architecture creates high-quality and enduring structures that enhance the economic value and reduce the lifecycle costs of a building. Design and construction of buildings are driven by the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines and promote these goals.

  5. 5. WTP4 Maintenance Building 6708 North FM 620, Austin, TX 78730 LEED BD+C: New Construction v2.2 AWARDED LEED SILVER DECEMBER 2019 Negrete & Kolar Architects Water Treatment Plant 4, Austin’s newest water treatment plant facility, supports the city’s drinkable water infrastructure by treating 50 million gallons a day (mgd), with the potential to expand up to 300 mgd. WTP4’s LEED Silver Certified Maintenance Building is built within the facility’s vicinity to access, restore and improve every part of the plant and its services to an acceptable standard and to sustain the utility and value of the facility. This includes day-to-day services necessary to maintain the main plant at WTP4, usage of the building’s systems and equipment, as well as the occupants/users that will be operating within the facility. The other main building on the campus is the Administration office which has achieved a separate LEED certification to gold level. In order to minimize energy consumption, the Maintenance Building has been divided up into cooling and heating zones in the usage of various functional spaces. An example of this can be seen in the electrical and office spaces, which include heating and air-conditioning units, while the warehouse area is limited to heating and ventilation only. The roof of the building also exemplifies an area that has implemented measures to reduce the overall energy consumption by installing rooftop energy recovery ventilators. The ventilators connect directly to a new or existing rooftop unit and does not require any additional roof penetrations.
